I use peaches all summer long in every way I can, including this Fresh Peach Ice Cream! If you have enough peaches, make both for your next party. Then you can sit back and enjoy the sweet peach flavors before they flee until next summer.
Fresh herbs are one of the greatest “trends” in cocktails. The rosemary syrup in this punch recipe adds a new depth of flavor. This little flavor upgrade will keep your guests coming back for seconds and thirds!
Peach Punch Recipe Ingredients
For the rosemary syrup:
- Granulated sugar
- A few sprigs of rosemary
For the punch:
- Rosemary simple syrup – I’ll teach you how to make this with the ingredients above!
- Lemon-lime soda – you can substitute club soda if you want a less sweet punch or even ginger ale if you don’t have Sprite on hand.
- Frozen raspberries – to keep your punch chilled without ice! Be sure to use fresh fruit for best results!
Make sure to let the simple syrup cool before adding it to your drinks. Make this the day before the party if you’re on a time crunch!
I LOVE pitcher drinks for parties! Everyone makes their own drink and no one gets trapped behind the bar mixing up cocktails.
How to Make Rosemary Peach Tequila Punch
- First, let’s make the syrup! Combine your water, sugar, and rosemary in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring it to a boil and stir constantly until the sugar has dissolved.
- After about a minute of bubbling, remove the saucepan from the heat. Then let the rosemary steep in the syrup for at least half an hour.
- Then you’ll remove the rosemary sprigs and strain the simple syrup through a mesh strainer. This will remove any smaller rosemary pieces that might still be hanging out in the simple syrup.
- When your rosemary simple syrup is done, add the peaches and syrup to a blender and process until smooth.
- Next, pour the peach mixture into your pitcher and add the tequila and lemon-lime soda.
- Finally, add some ice cubes to a glass and pour in your punch. Then I like to add in some frozen raspberries, a peach slice, and rosemary sprig for garnish!
This simple syrup is AMAZING! It brings out the rosemary flavor and some sweetness in this punch recipe… without the raw sugar grit or rosemary leaves.
I love to make a batch of this simple syrup and keep it in an airtight container in the fridge. Then you can bust it out for cocktails, teas, and any other thing you’d add sugar to!
If you’re serving a crowd, you can make a double or triple batch of this punch to serve in a punch bowl. It’s extra pretty if you make an ice ring with the sliced peaches, raspberries, and some rosemary to float in the bowl.
This punch is 100% perfect for all your occasions. I’m talking baby showers (not for mom-to-be… she can have this Sparkling Peach Punch instead), birthday parties, or any time you want to serve up a party punch!

What is tequila made from?
It’s is one of the most popular cocktail liquors because of its smokey taste and smooth flavor, but what IS tequila?
Tequila is a member of the mezcal family, which is a group of spirits made from a range of agave plants. Specifically, tequila is a distilled beverage made from fermented sugars in the blue agave plant.
Tequilas can be bottled immediately after distilling or aged for years. The different processes lead to different types of tequilas.
There are five basic types of tequilas:
- Blanco is a great young tequila for cocktails and shots with light to clear color.
- Joven is a mix of unaged tequilas but has a golden color instead of clear like a blanco.
- Reposado is slightly barrel-aged, at least 2 months. The more tequila is aged, the darker its color becomes.
- Añejo is a well-aged tequila having spent anywhere from 1 to 3 years in a barrel. This is a great tequila for sipping straight or on the rocks but is not typically seen in cocktails.
- Extra Añejo is the longest-aged and is also a sipping tequila.
